ABSTRACT OF Designing a More Equitable Internet

Tapan will explore the design of cheap, "low-fidelity" ways for new
populations to easily and cheaply author content, the importance of
"bottom-up" data for planning and evaluating development projects, and
how to bridge the gaps between the two by interleaving automated and
human-driven steps.

TAPAN PARIKH is an assistant professor at the School of Information at
UC Berkeley.  His research includes HCI, mobile computing, paper and
voice UIs, and information systems for microfinance, smallholder
agriculture, global health, and education.
